country. the government claims rebel groups use the weapons in an attempt that reportedly killed more than two dozen people. the rebels deny it. they claim it was, in fact, the regime that launched the attack. but after more than two years of each side leveling accusations of murder and torture and increasingly desperate employees for support for world powers. it's impossible to know who to believe. the regime claims the chemical attack happened outside of aleppo. syrian state media showed this video and reports it shows so. wounded. the people here do not bear any signs of any chemical warfare. no visible blisters or convulsions, discolored scand so forth. today the white house cast doubt on that government claim. the white house issued a stern warning nevertheless. >> the issue of the possibility of chemical weapons remains a great concern. you heard the president from this podium express his position when he said, quote: the use of chemical weapons is and would be totally unacceptable. and his warning to the syrian regime that, quote: there will be consequences and you will be held acc
the budget because the only way you really can make an impact on government is by understanding the budget. and for this president to be in office for five years, not be able to get a budget done on time, really tells us that he has no interest in our economy, he has no real interest in straightening out our budget problems. i don't know what his priorities are, but they certainly aren't straightening out the tremendous debt that we've accumulated under his presidency. >> greta: and the senate should note that other presidents should know that other presidents have been late, but this is the first time the president didn't get the budget before the house and senate and we waited and supposed to get it early april, but maybe. mayor, listen to this the national debt we all owe stands at more than 16 trillion dollars, so are president obama and speaker of the house, john boehner, both in denial or are they drinking the same stuff? >> i think it's important to recognize is that we've already cut 2.5, 2.7 trillion dollars out of the deficit. if the sequester stays in you've got over 3 1/2 trill

with the government and a very war hawkish administration seemed to be anti-american. so in that environment, the voices that were speaking out against this war, but in that environment, those voices could be muffled and people were being painted as being anti-american because they were pro peace. >> right. mrs. walsh, we saw what donald rumsfeld said on twitter. we saw dick cheney say he would do it all over again and not acknowledge any mistakes. >> the main fault -- i don't spend a lot of time thinking about my faults i guess would be the answer. >> no kind of political introspection there. but will history let these men off the hook for what they did? >> no, they're going down in history for a horrible, terrible war. i was going to say a lapse of judgment, but it was not a lapse of judgment. it was a deliberate act. they cooked the evidence. they brow beat people. they would karl rove as their political hench men. the vote was scheduled on the eve of the elections deliberately. i don't want to let democrats off the hook. 29 senate democrats voted to authorize the use of force. some apolo

. there is no precedent for something off that ticket and thrust into governing responsibility. the balance he has to strike is doing his demanding day job and maintaining his options in the event he wants to run for president and a difficult balance to strike. >> you know him well. do you sense he aspires to more nationally? did he get a taste for president politics the last time around? >> i don't want to speak for him but i think he continues to have a taste and ambition to have a big impact on some of these issues he cares about nationally. he's a number of ways he can do it punish. mark leibovich wrote that article. paul ryan can't lose. meaning he could run for president if he stays in congress, he'll be chairman of ways and means committee and some talk about him playing a more prominent role in leadership so he has to decide where he can make his mark. no one i believe has done more to advance the conservative policy agenda in terms of where he has moved through republican congress the last for a years. >> mark, he's a young man, in his early 40s. he has a lot of politics ahead of him. wha
, to you know recognize that palestinians deserve a state, that they have just as much right to self-governance as the israelis do. and that you know, i've been using this construct, there's security to peace, which is one way to look at it but there's also peace to security. i think that was the argument he was trying to make yesterday. >> the justice peace of it was also really pronounced heather and we've talked about the president's second inaugural. and the fact that he's laid out a vision for this country that some people have said it's decidedly progressive. but at its core is about peace and justice. >> he linked the struggle in the middle east to peace and the civil rights movement and the long march for justice. that humanizes everyone. he talked about the joshua generation, an underrecognized theme in his 2008 campaign and the idea there is it was actually the next generation, the joshua generation that pulled the people out of, out of the wilderness and into the promised land. and a lot of people have talked about how our generation, the sort of post civil rights generation is going
assertions by the highest officials in the government. without looking for the hard evidence to support it. >> more concern about the politics of my decision rather than what is right and what is wrong. >> i have prayed to god many times that he would forgive me for sending his children to die in a war that never had to happen. >> was there ever any consideration of apologizing to the american people? >> i mean, apologizing would basically say the decision was a wrong decision. and i don't believe it was a wrong decision. >>> one last stop. the president this morning heading home from the mideast. today, what he said on one particular issue is making big headlines. >>> signs of the sequester. it could be coming to an airport near you. might it lead to dangerous skies? >>> up all night. they call it. the u.s. senate just finished its business a short time ago. why did they stay so late? >>> it's a bird, it's a plane, it's actually neither. but it is something that caught the eye of thousands. good morning, everyone and welcome to "weekends with alex witt." let's get to what's happening righ

a bill to avoid a government shutdown to fund agencies through september 30th. senators voted 63-35, in case you're wondering, to limit the debate o legislation. a final vote on the bill could come as early as today. it would be sent to the house for final approval this week. we're going to talk more about the financial issues facing the country with fix the debt. mark burtolini is the ceo and chairman of aetna. >> he said they've -- i think they've done some layoffs. the layoffs were set in place. >> will you combine the white house -- you know, those were shut down with the easter egg hunt. didn't you go on that one year? >> yeah. >> it's starting to dig. it's start to go cut. >> why are people so outraged? >> about the easter egg hunt? >> come on. >> this is one of those things you're not supposed to comment on, right? >> i love easter. >> you really do? >> but you don't have to have it paid for with taxpayer dollars. >> i love the eggs and hiding the eggs. >> it's secular. >> it's in that category. >> you know what it represents. >> it is. >> my birthday is number three, the
that would have allowed government officials to dip into the personal bank accounts of its citizens to fund a bailout. what's next? and with our nation facing a financial crisis, could it happen here? >>steve: we're talking to fox business network's charles payne. scary what's going on in cyprus. you see long lines, people up against the a.t.m. because the banks aren't open yet. >> it is scary because anywhere in the world people think their savings accounts are off limits. you've worked hard for this money. here's the thing. they were ready to tax everyone. i don't care if you would ten euro zone in the bank or a million euros in the bank, they were going to hit you with this tax. obviously that scares the heck out of people. >>alisyn: luckily it was shot down, that plan, because it was so controversial. how did europe react to all of this? >> it's interesting because i don't think the europeans were ready for this to happen. they hatched the plan over last weekend, the i.m.f., e.c.b. and the european union and i think they thought they had the votes. this puts them in a precarious positio
and democratic state if things don't change. and he urged young israelis to pressure their government because he said politicians do not take risks unless there is public pressure for change. that was his key message. >> one thing that struck a lot of folks, the president's different stance and tone in regards to this trip. let's listen to remarks that president obama made in cairo in 2009 compared to remark he is gave in ramallah on thursday. take a look. >> this construction violates previous agreements and undermines efforts to achieve peace. it is time for these settlements to stop. how do we get a sovereignty for the palestinian people and assure security for the israeli people? that's not to say settlements are not important t is to say that if we some those two problems, the settlement problem will be solved. >> bill schneider that is a significant reversal what is behind that? >> he wants to get the peace talks started, the palestinians have essentially echoed the american position, which is they won't go to the table unless the settlement -- another moratorium on settlements, in which c

government website. at one point the voice says that the white house has been captured. and the capital of war is with and in the range of our atomic bomb. detests that they have launched with the sanctions are run the world to try to decrease those efforts. >> catherine: now for today's market update. stocks were up -- as the federal reserve stands by it's economic stimulus plan. here are today's closing numbers. the dow rose 55 points.which briefly traded at an all-time high today. the nasdaq rose 25 points. and the s-and-p rose 10 points. >> the senate has passed a huge spending bill to fund the government through the end of september. the bill would avoid a partial federal shutdown at the end of the month. a vote tomorrow in the house would send the measure to president barack obama for his signature. it includes funding for the day-to-day operating budgets of every cabinet agency, and another 87- billion dollars for military operations in afghanistan and iraq. >> the unemployment rate for veterans dropped last year, according to a report out today from the u-s bureau of labor stati
counterparts about what's going on in syria. did the government in syria use chemical weapons against its own people. that's a big question. obviously the nuclear showdown with iran. the presidentister wants assurance if that diplomacy doesn't bear fruit that the president of the united states is prepared to put the military option on the table. and, yes, the president did say he wants to have peace in the holy land and he will make that a priority. no accident the president says that this is the first international trip of his second term. >> this is no accident. across this region, the winds of change bring both promise and peril. so i see this visit as an opportunity to reaffirm the unbreakable bond between our nations, to restate america's unwavering commitment to israel's security, and to speak directly to the people of israel and to your neighbors. >> reporter: now, remember, carol, the first big trip of the president's first term was that trip to cairo. he gave that big speech promising more outreach to the arab and muslim world. some israelis took offense, they didn't think he took en
